  • Brooklyn Boulders Somerville
    Climbers of all ages and skill levels scamper across roughly 22,000 square feet of climbable space inside Brooklyn Boulders's rock-climbing gym. A dedicated route-setting staff organizes color-coded problems on craggy, angled top-rope walls as well as bouldering walls that reach up to 15 feet. To help visitors master these walls, seasoned instructors train them in three basic types of climbing: bouldering, top-rope climbing, or lead climbing. They teach these skills through classes such as the peak-performance program, which combines seven classes in lead climbing, bouldering, and cross-training to accelerate students' learning. To ease stressed muscles and promote calm reflection, staffers also lead all-ages yoga lessons and monthly yoga workshops. Brooklyn Boulders also injects creativity into its special events, which encourage visitors to climb in costume around Halloween and take part in competitions during which they pretend the floor has turned to lava. Staffers also invite local graffiti artists to display their murals inside, work to preserve regional climbing areas by partnering with Access Fund, and coordinate programs through its BKB Foundation?a nonprofit that provides greater access to rock climbing for kids and adults.

  • Olde Magoun's Saloon
    Olde Magoun's replaces the handlebar mustache fights and blindfolded moonshine tastings of old-timey saloons with a menu of fresh pub fare. Thai beef skewers ($9.95) and Cuban egg rolls ($8.95) warm up the palate in time for exquisite entrees like the chicken curry ($11.95) and the grilled Reuben XXL ($9.95)—which arrives overstuffed with layers of shaved corned beef, Russian dressing, Swiss, and either ale-braised sauerkraut or homemade coleslaw. Carnivores who insist that their meat be shredded by a skilled hair-metal chef will savor the North Carolina pulled pork sandwich ($9.95), while the veggie-friendly V-8 pizza ($9.95) tops itself with every herbivorous morsel in the house. Olde Magoun's serves its food until late so that it can be paired more easily with a vast array of draught beer that includes Clown Shoes Brown Angel Ale, Murphy's Irish Stout, and Paper City Blueberry Ale.
